To get in the spirit of Halloween, Conan O’Brien checks out some scary PC games in the dark. Conan plays Slender, Amnesia and Outlast. But which one will frighten him? Bore him? Remind him of German porn?
Slender: The Eight Pages was one of the more beguiling successes of last year — a weird, super low-rent thriller that combined the popular Slenderman mythos with simple jump-scare design. Its stripped-down look and basic design were part of the appeal.
See here, the official teaser for Faceless, a game previously known as Slender: Source. It’s got a complicated lineage: inspired by another game, which was in turn inspired by an internet meme.
